The 36th Annual United Van Lines Migration Study indicates that Oregon is one of the most desirable state to move in to.

 

Roger Lee with Economic Development for Central Oregon says that's not news to him.  "Everything that I’ve ever seen is that we certainly have much more in migration than out migration. And Oregon’s been pretty strong for that for years. It’s really driven by quality of life factors; quality schools, especially for California, lower cost of living. You know, the kind of quality of life that attracts people here, overall, into our region, certainly in spades."

 

Lee says that one difference he's seen lately is that a few more people are looking to move here from the warmer states like Texas and the south, and that trend could stem from the recent several years of strong weather events.

 

The study also show that more people are moving away from the northeastern area of the nation.
